Sony Pictures Deal: The 3rd Wave

Fantastic news, Ramblers. As I’m sure many of you already know, Rick Yancey’s awesome novel, The 5th Wave, has been adapted for the big screen. With Chloe Grace Moretz taking the lead role, the film looks set to be a faithful, action-packed adaptation.

Good times for all The 5th Wave fans out there.

What you might not know is that, as part of their promotional campaign, Sony Pictures have teamed up with Wattpad to produce a series of novelettes focusing on the Four Waves that hit the world prior to the start of the novel.

*cue drumrooooolllll*

Y’all see where I’m going with this?

Yes, Ramblers, Sony have selected me to be part of this project. Give me a moment while I run around, shrieking madly. I joined Wattpad for the simple purpose of sharing my stories with people, and I never expected that it would open up such a fantastic opportunity. Yes, I know it sounds corny, but I really do feel honoured to be a part of this.

The story I have been commissioned to write will be set during the 3rd Wave, at the height of the Blood Plague. For me, that was the grimmest and most devastating of the Waves, so you can understand how super-psyched I am to be writing about it.

And because a picture is worth a thousand words, here are some GIFs that capture my reaction when I found out the news.

Shadows Rising: Sneak Peek

When I initially started writing When Darkness Falls, I didn’t give any thought to a sequel. It was just a story that I felt I had to write.

But now, after posting the story to Wattpad, and receiving such an overwhelming response from readers, I realised there was more of Luke and Kiara’s story to tell.

It’s been a bit of a mission trying to get the sequel written and edited in a short space of time, but I believe I can finally announce a release date of 9th October.

For all the When Darkness Falls fans out there, here is a first glimpse at the cover for Shadows Rising.
